Following the initial announcement this morning, EA UK’s announced this afternoon that Crysis 1 on PS3 and 360 will be a downloadable release only for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

The game will be priced at 1600 MS points for XBLA and £14.99 on PSN, with full 3D support, optimized Nanosuit controls and fine-tuned combat all supported with the inclusion of CryEngine 3.

“We are extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish with Crysis. We set out to create a next-generation FPS and delivered a PC experience that became a benchmark for quality – and still is for many gamers even four years later,” said Crytek boss Cevat Yerli.

“By bringing the single-player campaign to console, we believe we are again setting a new standard for quality in downloadable gaming.”

The original Crysis launched in 2007 for PC. The console version releases October 4.
